Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (or IBD) is a very common, long-term condition that affects the digestive system.

It is slightly more common in women than men. Inflammatory Bowel Disease usually starts in early adulthood but can occur at any age. Up to three million Americans have some form of IBD.


Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is a chronic condition that causes inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Unlike ulcerative colitis, it is not isolated to one area. It can affect any part of the GI tract from the mouth to the colon.

Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis creates inflammation and ulcers (sores) in the digestive tract. Symptoms tend to be more apparent over time as the disease progresses. The innermost lining of the colon and rectum are affected, creating life-threatening issues if not treated in time.
